I just got back Saturday from a trip my family takes each year to Ludington MI. It started out 20 years ago with one cottage and around 12 of us. This year it was four cottages and including all the coming and goings we had 42 in attendance. That's al lot of Italians!
A few of my mom's grandchildren in their 30's (including two of my kids) came up for the first time. They were way too cool to come up when they were in their late teens and early 20's. Did time make the rest of us more cool or them less judging?
Two of the grandkids were unable to make it due to work commitments and this is where the story gets interesting. Nathan lives in Roseville and Kimberly lives in Royal Oak and they ran into each other at a 7 Eleven at 15 & Crooks. It's never happened before to them and most likely won't happen again. Crazy huh!
It reminds me of the movie Casablanca when Humphrey Bogart's character Rick say to Ingrid Bergman's character Ilsa "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into min". Well, in all of the 7 Eleven's in all the towns...you get the idea.
We are all share the same energy, no matter who or what we are. Was it the energy of the family coming together, often mentioning that we had wished that they could have made it, that drew them toward each other. Was it their energy, knowing that they were the only ones not up north that brought them together. Either way there was some intense sharing of energy going on to make that happen. Of course we will never know, this is one of those mysteries of the universe.
Every thought, action, and word that we put out there does make a difference. It's energy in one form or another. It connects us in ways beyond our comprehension. They create situations that make the hair on our arms stand up. Most of them we don't realize, they aren't as "in your face" as the 7 Eleven encounter, but they happen.
Moral of the story? Really pay attention to the energy that you put out there because remember the law of Karma, what you put out comes back.
So before you open your mouth, think a thought and take action, ask yourself, do you want this coming back to you at some time in the future.....and just breathe.
